When the narrator attends the funeral of an old friend, a Veteran whom had been homeless, he is stunned when, being the only person to attend, he is given the flag from the coffin. Feeling he could have easily wound up homeless and friendless himself, he begins to relive his own life, beginning with the oldest memory in his possession, to see where he made his biggest mistakes and poorest career choices. He takes the reader on a humorous, philosophical, and often brutally eye-opening trek that chronicles his transformation from shy, devout Altar Boy, who wants to be a priest, to slick, soulless salesman who battles with himself over the necessity to leave his conscience at home in order so succeed. Just what was it that brought him to the very brink of suicide just before reading his friend’s obituary? The book is full of unique, touching observations and analogies and comical situations that cover the narrator’s tremendous successes and abysmal failures. The second to the last chapter will lead the reader on a journey through a suicidal mind, explain how and why it became that way, and show what the enlightenment was that prevented him from going through with it. The last chapter will sum up everything and explain “The Legacy”. All points made throughout the entire journey will be brought together and the reader will, after having his/her breath denied, be gently laid back down to earth with a feather’s touch.
